Are you a Bachelor student in Mechanical Engineering? Do you have experience in NX or another CAD program? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background Information

The main challenge of ASML is to continue Moore’s law by making it possible to produce smaller chips with a higher accuracy and speed. To establish this, ASML machines should continuously be improved on wafer positioning accuracy and production speed. The mechanics of the machine play a key role in the achieved performance. Their designs are on the edge of what is possible and every detail is important. Over 400 mechanical engineers are working on these challenges on a daily basis.

As the components in the ASML machines are becoming more complex, new manufacturing processes are needed to realize these components.

One of the possibilities is the use of 3D (additive) manufacturing processes like SLM (Selective Laser Melting) in titanium or stainless steel. By using SLM, components can be realized with complex shapes and integrated functions like optimized manifolds, brackets, internal cooling chambers and cooling channels.

Your Assignment

Within additive manufacturing (AM) competence you will release materials from a certain supplier for volume production.
To reach this goal you will:
- Formulate test procedures.
- Define, model and order test-parts.
- Execute material tests according to the test procedures.
- Statistically process the test results and make a report.

Your Profile

• You are a Bachelor student in Mechanical Engineering.
• Experience in NX or another CAD program is preferred.
• You have good communication skills and have a proactive attitude.
• Good knowledge in English, verbal and written is needed.

This is a Bachelor apprentice or graduation internship with duration of 4 to 6 months, for 4 to 5 days a week. The start date of the internship is as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.

Other information

What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance based on your educational level and number of days per week, plus a possible housing or travel allowance. More information on the allowances can be found on our website. In addition you will get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

ASML: Be part of progress
We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the applications to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard. At ASML we are always pushing technology further.

Students: Getting ready for the real-world
Teamwork is key within ASML. Our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong and worldwide we form one big team with over 25,000 employees. These colleagues have 123 different nationalities and work at our major sites on three continents.

Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule. In this inspiring environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country, or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is your opportunity to get to know this world and get a feel for that excites you most. Use your education, gain real-life working experience and explore the world of high-tech – all at the same time.
